Press Release ( - MANHATTAN, N.Y. - Aug 21, 2017 - SPORTIME Randall’s Island and the Johnny Mac Tennis Project (JMTP) are holding scholarship tryouts for children ages 6 to 12 who are interested in attending the John McEnroe Tennis Academy’s instructional program at the Frederick Johnson Park Tennis Courts.

Youngsters from SPORTIME Randall’s Island neighboring communities, including Harlem and the South Bronx, are expected and encouraged to attend.

JMTA coaches will make evaluations with an eye for both skill level and enthusiasm for the sport. Young athletes who display promise may be awarded a JMTP scholarship, which will cover group sessions, individual instruction, valuable training camps, integral performance training and mental toughness workshops, as well as convenient transportation to SPORTIME/JMTA facilities on Randall’s Island. Since its founding in 2012, the JMTP and SPORTIME have awarded over 200 scholarships to children who live in the communities near Randall’s Island and throughout the city.
